The transfer window is just behind us but that does not stop the rumors regarding Arsenal from flying around.
Every day we can see a new player being added to the mix and that is interesting to say the least. One of the names that is in the mix is Adrien Rabiot who is out of contract at the end of this season.
According to reports in the Mirror, the Frenchman who plays for PSG is set to leave the club in the summer and it appears that Arsenal are leading the pack to sign him. It further states that the reason the North London club have an edge is because of manager Unai Emery’s history with the French club.
As the manager of PSG, Emery had first-hand experience of working with Rabiot and it seems that it could be the defining factor in getting the midfielder to the Emirates.
But getting him to join the Gunners is easier said than done as there is some fierce competition for the player’s services. The main competition is coming from Spain in the form of Barcelona(as per Sport) who really want Rabiot to join them.
Another factor that works in favor of the Gunners is the fact that Barcelona have just recently signed Frenkie De Jong from Ajax, who will be joining them in the summer. If Rabiot was to go there as well, the chances of him getting a lot of playing time are slim.
The fact that the Frenchman is available for free in the summer is what makes this deal even more enticing for any club that is looking to take him.
The 23-year-old midfielder has refused to sign a new deal with the Ligue 1 champions and as a result of that, he has been frozen out of the team.
This has only gone on to make his desire to leave the club that much stronger. It is clear that he is a player who has immense quality as well as potential. If the Gunners are able to get him to the club, it will go a long way in offsetting the damage done by the impending departure of Aaron Ramsey.
